Years ago I created a life plan and have rarely had a foggy day since. It happened when I discovered Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy and began planning my life like a story. The process brings me clarity and focus every day. I’d say I’m more healthy today than I’ve ever been, and I owe it all to thinking and planning in the form of narrative.
